RHOSCOLYN HERALD

Nearly £400 Raised for Macmillan by Green GymRachel Darwazeh

To mark Macmillan Cancer Research’s annual Coffee Morning, members of the Penrhos Green Gym held an informal coffee and cakes event, raising £365 for the charity. We were lucky to enjoy a warm sunny morning and the delicious cakes provided by Carole Keary at Coffee Cups, the Toll House café, to whom thanks are due for working so hard to serve everyone and donating the takings to the total raised. If you’re feeling peckish Carole’s lemon drizzle cake infused with early grey tea is hard to beat!

The Green Gym meets every Friday from 9.00 to 10.00 am at Penrhos. If you think you might enjoy an hour’s varied exercise outdoors in the woods or on the beaches in friendly sociable company do come and join in. All ages and all abilities are more than welcome.Rachel

Expressions

This was the theme for the October Gallery, and we got a very varied and creative selection as you can see from these examples (in fact, the first one is one of only two human expressions we received!). Have a look at the Gallery to see if your Expression pictures feature.

“SKY TIPPING” OF LANTERN BALLOONS HARMING OUR WILDLIFE

Anglesey Council has issued a warning about “sky-tipping” – balloons and lanterns set off during celebrations. Hundreds of these have been found strewn on the coastal path, putting wildlife at risk. The Friends of the Isle of Anglesey Coastal Path, who coined the expression, say that they are injuring animals and trapping fish, and the Council is now urging the public (and businesses) to avoid using balloons at events “where possible”- ed’s note: when is is NOT possible NOT to use these horrid things?
